This 5.0% ABV beer pours a dark honey golden in color. It is well carbonated and has a large foamy white head that leaves sticky lacing of medium density down the glass. The aroma is grain, straw and some lager funk. The taste is deep grain, a touch of sweetness, a touch of tartness, a touch of lager funk. There is only a slight hop bitterness.
